One Cool Necktie

I think I found this in an issue of McCall's Needlework and Crafts magazine - I think this is a pretty cool and colorful idea - what a great-looking necktie!
I'm a bit sewing-challenged, as you may recall - so I don't think it is a project I would want to tackle - and I would need more vintage embroidered ribbon, anyway. These are the only ones I have:

But maybe one of YOU will want to make one. Please let me know if you do; I would love to see it when you're done!
Because I really do think that is one VERY cool necktie.

Cool for a girl perhaps. My Hubby trusts me when it comes to picking out what he wears, but even he would draw the line at this.

Love the idea though. It would make a charming change purse. Now if only I had enough ribbon...

Hey, if a bunch of us did a ribbon swap we could have a variety, and all make a change purse together!

The tie caught my eye, I like it!

And your ribbon looks great, would be great as a purse or make up bag!

I love that tie, it looks like Mary Engelbreit designed it. I have some celtic design ribbon and some paisley. Love T

I love it but I think my hubby would probably nix the idea of wearing it. I think it would make a great headband.

Deanna :D

Where can I find similar ribbon! I want to make a couple dresses with trim juts like that blue floral band - do you have any ideas where I could look for it? Thanks!
